tv Varney Company FOX Business September 25, 2014 11:00am-1:01pm EDT
welcomed this adorable bundle of joy, kayla benjamin, congratulations to jackie, justin and the baby, benjamin. good to see you and we will see you back here when you are ready. i wish you the best. time for "varney and company". stuart: that is very good news about young justin. i didn't know he was expecting. congratulations to one and all. you are dead right. this is a sell-off. look at it go down. 190 points lower for the dow jones average better than 1%. big drop. look at the nasdaq because it is technology stocks which are worse off than most other issues. technology, you could say, is leading this market down. all 66 stocks in the s&p, the tech stocks in the s&p 500, all of them are down at this point. what is leading tech stocks lower? apple. look at it go down. we are down 3-1/2% on apple,
putting it back and $90 a share. hold on a second. there is news in the background. eric holder stepping down as attorney general from the justice department, that has had no impact on the stock market whatsoever but it just happened. early this morning, durable-goods orders, a very big drop, down 18%. that is only a partial reason for what is going on on wall street at the moment. the big movers in my opinion, the u.s. dollar has gone straight up against some currencies. it has reached a six year high. that has produced a downside move in interest rates again. the yield on the ten year treasury down this morning as the dollar goes up. one last point, it is september 25th, that is five days away from october. always in my opinion again, the most shaky month. a hand holding month. it is october, five days away and the dow is down 197 points. charles payne is with me.
you will give me a dispute about october being a shaky month? charles: people don't realize september has been worse for the market than october. technically. but you have the black friday in october. put it this way, september, october, horrific for the stock market historically. the irony is the three months after the rest of the year have been phenomenal. stuart: i make the point of the u.s. dollar is very strong. i don't know what the linkage is between a very strong dollar and a sharply lower stock market. can you tell me? charles: it didn't get stronger overnight but let's just say if this. manufacturing, when our company sold products abroad they sell it in local currency and when they convert it back to dollars they give more dollars instead of fewer dollars, strong dollar hurts dramatically. it is interesting because we talk about all the money printing. one of the goals is to push the dollar down and that hasn't worked in part because everyone else has been printing.
it has been the race to the bottom. that hasn't necessarily work for us. i want to make a point with durable-goods. the report that comes out that specifically focuses on businesses, that was a huge number. i think what we are seeing, it was up huge. if you take out what you do is take out new orders, take out aircraft and other stuff. it was a big number. here is what we are dealing with. a market that has been really volatile of late but we were all into one of the longest periods of no volatility ever, no moves above or below 1/2%. now we are getting the shakiness and to your point we are getting the profitable tech names that are down. a lot of people don't realize although the audience does because they have stocks in portfolio, coming in to the wheat, 40% of russell 2,000 stocks were in the bear market. over 40%. 47% nasdaq stocks were already
in the bear market. what you have got our people, when winter starts to look shaky, nobody gets losers. now they're starting to police a little bit. it will be interesting. we want in it. stuart: the dow industrials are down 200 points, nasdaq down 72 points, that is where technology stocks are based, and it is leading the market down. come on in, art laughter. explain to me the relationship between the dollar going up, treasury interest rate yields going down, and a big stock market sell-off? is their relationship? >> there is a relationship between parents evaluate interest rates. if you have expectations of inflation you get stronger currency. the foreign-exchange incidents occurred in my view, profits
held abroad in foreign currencies, out went you get the dollar rising sharply the value of those assets in dollar terms goes down. that is what you could be seeing in this market. stuart: that $2 trillion worth of profits being held overseas which are not coming to america are suddenly worth somewhat less. that reflects on the profitability of american companies which have that money overseas. >> the asset value of american holdings, and the asset value, from the appreciation of the dollar has been. stuart: everyone else on this planet is printing up a storm just as we are stopping printing a storm. the u.s. dollar continues to rise. does that mean continued pressure on american stock price?
>> i have never seen a strong country with though most weak currency. strong currencies are not bad for the country, and my view is the stronger the currency. king the dollar is an important aspect of the u.s. economy. i am not at all troubles by the rising dollar, and given what they were given on printing money. stuart: our viewers are anxious, nervous. >> i understand. i was in the dark all the time. let's get to apple, down 3.5%. >> pretty bad. we have a tough day on wall street. apple is down 3.5%, to the downside and every single sector so technology is among the worst
with energy. and those are some of the names to the downside. all 66 names represent the technology sector have down arrows. the vix, the fear index, up 17% at the moment. it is traditionally a weak with the down arrow. i was talking with mike nick nick gray wolf, and the 26 years, the s&p 500 posted gains on this particular week. last friday we were focused on ali baba but it was options exploration across the board. this is traditionally a selling week ended is coming to fruition. stuart: that took a lot of fear in. charles: the jewish holiday, a lot of people, a lot of
participants aren't around, tend to be extraordinarily exaggerated. think about the day after thanksgiving, right before christmas, these volatile moves, whatever direction it seems to go in, there is no one around to stop it. stuart: let me get back to that news item that broke 20 minutes are round. eric holder, he will step down, he won't leave the job until such time as his replacement is confirmed but the obama administration's top lawyer in charge while the irs targeting scandal was going on, he led the crusade to get the big banks to pay billions in fines for their role in the office. art laugher, i am saying the eric holder announcement has no impact whatsoever on monday, markets, wall street but can you assess may be some political impact? we are 41, 40 days away from the election. >> if it had any impact on the markets we would be in the
opposite direction. he has not been pro-business and has done his job well for obama and reflected obama well from their perspective but from my perspective, those fines and regulations, all this intervention on with obamacare has been damaging for u.s. markets and from my perspective i can't imagine a worse attorney general but politics is politics reflecting very well. he is a dignified, nice man. i don't think he has been the situation but i would hope this would lead to some serious looking at the irs scandal which bothers me. the irs should never be allowed to be used as a political tool, and i remember under george shultz when he was secretary of the treasury he was adamant that there be no intervention from the irs. eric holder and the justice department have not kept that principal. stuart: you remember the days of richard nixon during watergate when he wanted to use the irs
against his political opponents, the irs said no, we are not going to do that. may be that is different this time around because eric holder has not appointed a special prosecutor to look into this. back to the election for a second. on this show you often said the republican sweep of the senate would have a positive impact on wall street. maybe we can come back from this sell-off today if republicans sweep the senate in november. are you holding to that? >> very much so. we can get a lot of good policy in. i think we will get some corporate tax reform lowering that rate, broadening the base. keystone pipeline will be a slam dunk eliminating the tax on medical devices. we will for sure be done. we eliminate the sequester on government spending especially defense spending so there are a lot of good things that can happen when republicans take the senate and i hope this market going down is not a harbinger that the republicans aren't
going to take the senate. i hope that is not the case but i don't think so. one day is one day. stuart: we came into this program 10 minutes ago with the stock market falling sharply. we were looking for a little handholding from art laffer, we got it and the market stabilized. there you go. cheri dangerous thing, the market stabilized. i never say that. sorry to give you some credit. >> i will take every bit. i need credit. stuart: be careful. last word for charles before we hit the commercial break. eric holder, no impact on the market but a big impact on politics. charles: a big impact on politics which goes full circle to a big impact on the economy and the stock market. leading up to the midterm it can be shaky going into the election but after the election usually is the market goes up and this year the republicans don't blow it and they're giving away the farm not to blow it, president obama can do anything you wants right now republicans don't say anything. if they do take the senate i
think we will have a huge rally in the end of the year. stuart: i shouldn't have sent word because the dow is down 204 points. art laffer, i am very sorry. thanks very much. all good stuff, coming up next here is what we have got for you. the fight to destroy isis. we are going after is the money. america is going after financing, blowing up their oil refineries. lieutenant-colonel ralph peters up next. where does he think the president's priorities lie? where does art why in the fight begins coal, climate change, isis? >> stopping the rise of the oceans is where his heart is.

stuart: we are down a little more in the last couple minutes, 209 points, about not 1-1/4% loss. when stocks go down like that led by technology where is the price of gold? we will tell you, virtually unchanged, $0.50 an ounce lower. check out the price of oil. it is down, down $0.15 at $92 a barrel. that in my opinion is because the u.s. dollar is so strong. that would tend to depress the
price of crude oil. here is another thing we are keeping a close eye on especially on days like this. the sharp decline in interest rates. the yield at 2.1%. that is sharply lower yields on the ten year treasury because the u.s. dollars a strong. in comes the money to treasurys, pushing the price up and yields down. air strikes against targets in syria continue. coalition forces attacking a dozen isis controlled oil refiners they were using to refuel their vehicles and funds terror operations. before i talk about hitting them where it hurts in via pocket, i want to talk about president obama. do you think his heart is truly in destroying a racist? when he spoke at the united nations i got the impression that his heart was in going
after climate change, attacking coal lands not so much in his speech about isis and attacking the terror group. what do you say? >> we already have ample proof his heart is not in the struggle. he restricted our air strikes, first airstrikes in syria to attacking empty buildings and knocking down and tennis. we got epsom leaders of the khorasan group. when it came to degrading or destroying a isis, our air strikes hit in the middle of the nicest to purposely avoided even terrorist casualties. there's a currency market at play. in war the only currency, the dollar, the only currency that matters is blood. if you are not willing to kill terrorists and keep on killing them until they are gone and it takes a long time, if you do that, spill the blood and
nothing else counts. it doesn't count if you're not willing to kill. stuart: the president has consistently said no boots on the ground. american combat troops will not be dispatched to help places on the ground. consistently said that. these things he should reverse himself and put our troops on the ground and go after them in the desert, on the ground? >> you need special operations forces and infrastructure support for anybody we want to do the fight for us. so much of this sounds good. get the locals to fight. the reason the sony surge, the turnabout worked in iraq was americans were fighting beside them. it is the difficult question. in an integrated manner you need
american special operators on the ground. a lot of publicity work being done by the white house and the administration, those air attacks affected less than 1% of islamic states oil holdings. it hit refineries, local production. the money is exporting tanker trucks for crude. if you want to hit the oilfields themselves you close the border, you have drones and other aircraft on station to hit every oil tanker approaching the turkish border. there is so much more we could be doing. bottom-line on all of this is the president wants to get off sheet as cheaply as possible in every respect. when you are trying to fight wars they can be very expensive. stuart: i want to wrap this up.
this current strategy employed by president obama, air strikes, no. on the ground, go after the money if they can. is it going to work? are we going to destroy isis like that? yes or no? >> no and no. you cannot destroy an organization by annoying them. to put it in blunt american terms obama's political strategy, is a political strategy, not a military strategy, it is like arguing that if we take away toilet paper people will stop eating. there is no logic in all this. it gets a lot messier. stuart: pursuing what he thinks the american people want which is no. on the ground and degrade them by the air. >> you wants to get through november, one class to get through his last two years, but he is not serious about defeating islamist terror in any form. stuart: colonel ralph peters, always a pleasure. back to the market real fast,

talk past these issues. tension that eric holder has created is an issue of credibility. they will ask the next person to reestablish the credibility. >> the question that hangs at the bottom of all of this is whether eric holder was doing precisely what barack obama wanted him to do. holder was, to some extent and independent player. by and large, i think those major prosecutions against the banks, against the school systems and stalling on the irs undoubtably made the irs happy.
stuart: a stonewalling on the irs scandal that got to our viewers. we will never get to the bottom of that. stuart: thank you very much, indeed. let's check what is going on with it. maybe we are stabilizing on the downside. we have been down 200 for about the past hour. a loss of 1.29%. look at the nasdaq please. 1.6%. seventy-four points down. the s&p 500. the 10 year treasury. the yield there has come all the way down. that is a significant drop in yield.
four basis points. 2.51%. with that kind of thing happens, you know that something is going on here. up she goes. up to a six year high against several currencies. that, i think has affect did interest rates. pushing them down. the dow industrial is down at 200 ft. team points. technology is leading the way down. david nelson is here with us today. i am saying the dollar has gone straight up. interest rates have gone straight down. a great deal of week is around the world. >> not per se. certainly with interest rates
going down, that is understandable. they want to invest in this country. stuart: is this a flight to safety? >> i think the dollar rising is probably the surprise of the year for portfolio imagers. we have this week dollar because of quantitative easing. >> we stopped printing money. everyone else is printing money. >> if you have a low interest rate in germany, that is still high quality paper, relatively. >> what we have is the date. five days to october.
>> it is one of those things that work right up to the time. i will not think on that. we do have problems. the s&p 500 in large-cap names, this is where everyone is hiding. i do not know whether this is the beginning of a tent percent correction or not. nothing else is working. literally, nothing. stuart: hold hands with our audience. these are small investors. they have money in the market. they are thinking, should i sell
now? should i just sell now? that is a knee-jerk reaction. a big institutional program. those are the same guys that will be buying it on an up day. >> they will not tell today and buy back -- >> and you really should not. you need to have some sort of allocation that will help you ride through the storm. stuart: you are laughing because you are an advisor. [laughter] stuart: you scramble to get on the show and we appreciate that. you are telling our viewers not to do the knee-jerk thing. >> most professionals are not either. you will try to trade out of this.

stuart: i suppose that that is a reasonable point that you are making. frankly, i am on this thing all the time. i do not want to be out of the loop. i want to do that. i feel left out if i am not there. stuart: more flexibility sometimes, too. still the idea that you are working so many hours. if you work day and night, it tends to be worse. even behaviors like smoking, drinking. >> you are trying to calm me down. this was a german study. europeans who have an absolute dislike of work.

in the decision he and -- say hate each other. stuart: they were both in the same jihad against the banks. >> to take credit for beating up the bank's, who gets the bigger you know what? there is a lot of friction between the two. both sides, eric holder and p e preet have a acknowledge it privately but his record -- stuart: i make the judgment eric holder is inside business attorney. would you say that preet is anti business? >> preet is whatever it takes to get from this level to this level. if it is being anti business in this administration. stuart: ambitious career guide. >> one of the most ambitious people i know and also produces,
85-1, insider-trading investigation and convictions, people -- agreed to cooperate. stuart: why should he want to be the attorney general for two years and have to clean up the mess? >> great question. it looks good on your resume. here is the thing. it is two years. it is not exactly a lifetime. stuart: you wanted to be the governor of new york. >> preet has friends in the private sector, he could make zillions of dollars. he is an interesting guy. lost one case on insider trading, was a judge in the district who during a roast, a party for an assistant attorney general started attacking the judge said, calling him the stupidest judge she ever dealt with. he is an interesting guy, he buts heads with eric holder. the u.s. attorney is appointed by the president.
the question right now is who makes the choice? is it obama who makes the choice? president obama appointed eric holder but also appointed preet, or does eric holder have a say in this, like a strong say. they hate each other. i think he goes with camilla harris. you have to watch this. it will be fun watching it. stuart: no matter who it is nobody who takes the attorney general's job is going to be vigorously pro-business. >> if you are a businessman this administration looks at you like the devil. they will squeeze money out of you, try to put you in jail for garbage like insider trading, what ever. that is the way you got to operate under those conditions. if you ask me it is one of the reasons, one element, not a huge element but one element why the economy is as lousy as it is. stuart: i am looking forward to
with the republicans sweep the senate, suppose they do in november, the confirmation hearings for the next attorney general will take place with a republican senate and that candidate would have a hard time. >> can you do a recess appointment on an attorney general? it would be unprecedented but who knows was this guy. he might do that. i don't know if you can do that with someone that high level. it will be hard to get through but preet, i think the business community would prefer him. you will see republicans give him a shot. harris is a died in the old left-wing radical. she is a liberal in the sort of progressive cents. i don't believe preet is that. stuart: charlie gasparino could not be more nasty. >> some people like that. you don't like that. some people like that. the new york times likes that.

taking all their money out of football but being selective about where they put it. >> they are sensitive, this all started with the vikings when they held their press conference saying adrian peterson would be reinstated and radisson on the backdrop behind the general managers that day which was an awful look when you looked at it that day based on the subject matter. based on where we are with adrian peterson, greg hardy and the panthers and these other guys the conversation is not about football. is about on field issues so you understand sponsor saying we don't want to pull completely because all this talk about budweiser and these other sponsors we want the nfl to handle this all little better, we wanted to be stronger is all fine, that is public relations but when you pull money that is a completely different deal. stuart: that has enormous influence. i think it has influence on the teams and the players's behavior
off the field because the penalty for doing what some of these guys have allegedly done is extreme and if the money starts to withdraw that has an influence. >> it is coming out of their pocket so i don't think players are looking and saying they are not putting their ads on our games. i think players are more responding to the league. the league is responding to the sponsors. >> the teams are going to take the hit from the sponsors walking away from certain players playing in 7 games. >> i think the teams are sensitive to the fact that the local revenue they receive, they have a bucket system and the local revenue is a higher percentage on that but it than there is -- so if you lose local revenue like the radisson sponsoring the vikin has a bigger impact. that gets their attention. you saw the way the vikings responded to that one. with the league's overall they sense pressure but i also think what they are doing right now they think they're doing the right thing. they admitted they made mistakes
